I just got a Harbor Freight motorcycle lift. I was about to buy one new for $300, but a buddy of mine sold me his for $220, which included the wheel chock. He didn't use it a whole lot, so I think I got a pretty good deal. I admit I was a little leery about this, so I practiced using it with my Suzuki GSXR 600 project bike first (black naked bike in the background). I figured if I dropped a bike, then that one I wouldn't be too upset about since it cost me only $800. Anyway, here's the lift. It operates very smoothly, unlike the rolling motorcycle jacks they sell (yellow lift in picture), which is awesome. I love that I can bring the bike to me rather than bending over or kneeling and getting sore while trying to do work. I strapped the front end down to keep the bike from leaning one way or the other just in case. The lift has a panel under the rear wheel that can be removed, so hopefully I can use that for easier rear wheel removal. I have a small jack that I think I can put on the lift to get the rear up off of the lift so I can pull that panel out. Another reason keeping the front end strapped down is a good idea.
